Thanks to everyone who's asked; yes, the play is going really well. I have seen it three times now and there is great feedback! Here are some pictures, which you can click to enlarge.
Am I the only one who thinks she looks like the blonde Abba singer?
I was very happy with how my music came across and how the actors sang the songs I wrote. It was strange to sit back and see it all come together, to hear the piano music I recorded become an integral part of the comedy.
I wrote three main songs for the show, which is about an old star who wants to make a comeback with the help of her former pianist/songwriter. I also recorded a series of transition pieces for the scene changes. There are many funny moments when the pair attempt to reinvent the diva's banal life for a biography. The performance from the actors is superb. They have to act, dance and sing, and they make it look so easy!
For those who are interested, I will be filming one of the last performances of the show this week and I plan to put together a little video with some of the highlights of the songs.
So, yes, it's been a great experience and I look forward to doing some more stuff with my music in the future. Speaking of the theatre, I have actually written a play (without music), which has been translated into French and which I hope will make it to the stage. But that's another story ...
